[Update: Fixed] Zach Ertz showing 0 points on Sleeper app issue gets acknowledged

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on October 18, 2021) follows:

If you are into fantasy sports, you must be familiar with the numerous apps and websites that allow you to enjoy the game with your friends. Sleeper is a popular website and app that started out as a place to discuss everything about sports and players and turned itself into a fantasy sports league.

The app is completely free and supports Fantasy Football, Basketball, and League of Legends teams. Players can easily draft their favorite players in one team and get points based on the performance of a particular team or player in the real world.

Like all online apps and services, sometimes some bugs and glitches do make their way through. Having said that, users are reporting a new bug that is causing a lot of confusion. According to Sleeper players, Zach Ertz is stuck at 0 points due to his trade to Arizona in the middle of the week.


@SleeperHQ Zach Ertz played on Thursday while he was in Eagle and today he got zeroed out because he’s now cardinal. That shouldn’t of happened. Are you guys going to fix it? I can’t imagine every commissioner on Sleeper is going to wanna have to go fix it manually

I started Ertz in a league on TNF, and he scored his 13 pts. Of course he got traded, and now since the cardinals game started, his score got blanked. I wasn’t able to move him out either. Is sleeper going to fix this and give him his points from TNF?

Zachary Adam Ertz is an American football player who was recently traded by the Arizona Cardinals from the Eagles for CB Tay Gowan. Fortunately, it looks like the developers of the Sleeper app are aware of Zach Ertz 0 points bug. For those wondering, they also said that they will award him with stats from the TNF.

Hi Sleeper fam, we’re aware that Zach Ertz is incorrectly showing 0.00 due to the trade to Arizona and are actively working on a fix that will award him his stats from TNF when he was with PHI. Hang tight!

We hope the Sleeper developers resolve the bug with Zach Ertz soon so players who picked him don’t lose any stats. When they do, we will update this space so make sure you keep an eye out.
